If you are a music enthusiast in the Harrisburg area, Stage on Herr at the Harrisburg Midtown Arts Center is a place you will want to be most days of the week. Though they concentrate on live music, the venue is a meeting place for all sorts of artsy folks: musicians, artists, and theater aficionados – even gamers. You could say the place doubles as an art gallery, since the walls of the interior are decorated with changing pieces from local artists. The stage is well equipped with modern sound and lighting. The bar boasts plenty to choose from, including local brews.
Most Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays the venue hosts local and national bands. Sometimes you will find a group from pretty far away, in fact, as one band – a Tuvan throat singing group – had travelled from as far away as Mongolia. On weekday nights, the place is still packed, especially on Wednesdays, when Mike Banks hosts open mic night. Stage on Herr has been touted as one of the best open mic nights in central PA. Monday and Tuesday is Karaoke, and Tuesday doubles as game night. When was the last time you played Monopoly anyway?
Stage on Herr is also a place for theater. The past few years, it has been the stage for the Rocky Horror Picture Show, that normally occurs in the fall around Halloween. Specials events include comedy improv night and theme movie night.
Stage on Herr is open Monday to Sunday from 4pm until 2am. For upcoming calendar of events visit their webpage or Facebook page.
